The Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference is the largest most comprehensive event of its kind in the region. The purpose of the conference is to assemble scientists, First Nations and tribal government representatives, resource managers, community/business leaders, policy makers, educators and students to present the latest scientific research on the state of the ecosystem, and to guide future actions for protecting and restoring the Salish Sea Ecosystem. To accomplish its purpose, the conference will feature plenary sessions with keynote speakers, concurrent sessions featuring oral presentations, poster presentations, workshops, frequent opportunities for informal networking, and related off-program events. In 2000, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environment Canada (EC) agreed to work together to address cross-border environmental issues facing the Georgia Basin-Puget Sound marine ecosystem (Salish Sea). This led to the hosting of the first joint Canada-U.S. interdisciplinary conference focused on the Salish Sea in 2003. Since then, the EPA and EC have been instrumental in guiding subsequent biennial conferences.
